Hannah J. Wise

News Partnerships Lead, Local News Lab at The Brown Institute



Hannah snuck into journalism after a decade in the live music/entertainment business. She has navigated a non-linear career path, bridged the gap between tech and journalism and led a successful multi-disciplinary team that launched dozens of interactive, data-driven and visual projects for CBC News in Canada. There, she co-founded a diverse managers’ committee focussed on diversity and inclusion efforts at the leadership level. A mom of young twins, she can talk parenthood while working a media job, and help with strategies for self-care.
